Teacher in Adelaide SA, Australia
Education is one of those things that every single human being on earth receives.
The sights, sounds, emotions and experiences that all children encounter both in formal and informal educational settings are catalysts for active knowledge construction. I believe in the philosophy of educational rationalism, whereby rational discourse and logical deduction reveal to learners knowledge they already possess through these encounters. Above all, I believe that children, and indeed all human beings, have an inherent tendency to learn and such learning is at its core, a function of social interactions. It is the role of a teacher to facilitate this.
I believe in creating a positive, energetic learning environment that appeals to all students. I enjoy the challenge of engaging reluctant learners as much as the thrill of seeing them achieve what they thought was not possible.
I am a guide to self discovery, not a deliverer of knowledge.
I enjoy implementing new ideas into my classroom and continuously learning with my students.
Intelligence is knowing the right question, not the right answer.
